Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 038 focuses on the Witches of Dathomir. They steer clear of Legends as they discuss how the witches were portrayed in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the novel Dark Disciple. They talk about their culture, compare them to the Sith and Jedi, and discuss their relationship with Palpatine. Pretty good episode.

Assembly of Geeks: Sorcerer’s Stone & Classic NES Madness covers the rush to buy the new NES console, they talk Big Bang Theory, the Han Solo movie, Doctor Strange, and some Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which leads to some Harry Potter discussion. Good episode.

Awards Chatter: Robert De Niro episode features a nice interview with the actor as they touch on a bunch of the movies that have stretched across his long career, his thoughts on comedies versus drama, how he ended up working with Scorsese and De Palma, some of the movies he’s had to pass on, and his thoughts on his latest movie The Comedian.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Awards Chatter: Rob Reiner episode covers the role his father has played in his life, and how he got into acting and directing. Rob recounts some stories, touches on the films he’s made, and talks a little about his latest project LBJ. Great episode.

Awards Chatter: Jeff Bridges episode is an excellent interview covering how Jeff got into acting, touching on his various roles, his love for music, working on Hell or High Water, and why he’s still acting.

Beltway Banthas: Episode XVII starts with a little Saturday Night Live discussion before they bring on their guest Bobby Roberts for a full on politics discussion. They talk a little Star Wars, but it’s very heavy on the real world politics side of things. They go over the comparison of Dooku to Trump and Hilary to Palpatine, social media memes, and the article about rebellions are built on hope. It leads to some interesting discussions. Good episode.
